Get Down Get Dirty - Vegetable growing workshop-series in English
This in-depth, six-part series of half-day workshops covers the fundamentals of urban permaculture and sustainable organic growing as the seasons unfold. We will cover crop planning, seeds, seedlings, composting, soil health, propagation by cuttings, creating a balanced garden, various vegetables, herbs, fruit, wild and edible flower crops, seed saving, four-season growing, harvesting, food processing, preservation and fermentation, and much more.
In addition to acquiring solid gardening knowledge, we will be looking into where this fits in the current socio-political spectrum and concentrating on living lightly on the earth. A healthy part of the workshop is taught outside in the vegetable garden.
The workshops include exclusive Cityplot growers’ booklets for all students.
